The Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg presents Dalí & Film, the first exhibition examining the relationship between the paintings and films of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989). Premiering Feb. 8 and running to June 1, the exhibition reveals how Dalí combined his skills in painting with the new and exciting possibilities of the moving image to define a new art. Featuring more than 100 works from collections from all over Europe and America, together with films, photographs, film scripts and drawings, Dalí & Film opened at the Tate Modern in London, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and will be displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 2008.
